Florida Sheriff Urges Citizens To ‘Arm Themselves’

By Grace Vasquez

Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey is known for his controversial but effective videos. His latest encourages citizens to arm themselves because “we’re in a different time and you have to be prepared to the first line of defense.”

Sheriff Ivey posted a video on the Brevard County website and Facebook page with the “4 A’s:” Awareness, Avoidance, Arm and Attack, as well as a course on self-defense through tactical shooting and decision making.”

Ivey said he would like citizens to be ready to “respond rather than react.” However, if you’re not someone who’s comfortable carrying a gun, or don’t believe you would be comfortable defending your life then look for an alternative solution, like pepper spray, stun guns or other weapons.

I feel lucky to call Sheriff Ivey a friend and he has done so much for his community. I totally agree with him its best to be prepared especially after what we as a community have gone through as we come up with the one year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shooting.
